DAILY POST: Here is why DCJ PHILOMENA MWILU should prepare to go to prison like Citizen TV’s JACQUE MARIBE – NOORDIN HAJI is not sleeping



Thursday December 6, 2018 – Director of Public
Prosecutions (DPP), Noordin Haji, has confirmed that he hired UK-based Queens
Counsel Khawar Qureshi to prosecute the corruption case facing Deputy Chief
Justice, Philomena Mwilu.
In October, Mwilu went to court and said she is immune to prosecution like
President Uhuru Kenyatta and her case should be handled by the Judicial Service
Commission (JSC).
Following her case, Chief Justice David Maraga constituted a five judge bench
that will decide on whether Mwilu is immune to prosecution or not.
However, DPP Noordin Haji has argued that since Mwilu is a member of the
JSC, the matter should not be taken to the commission adding that it was the
reason he appointed Mr Qureshi.
“He (Khawar Qureshi) is not coming here to handle all corruption cases. He
is coming specifically for the Deputy Chief Justice case because it is an
important matter of public interest,” Haji clarified.
The DPP also said that he picked the London-based Professor through
single-sourcing after failing to find a suitable candidate through
advertisement.
